Common Questions on Wedding Lights
Best decor options for a night outdoor wedding ?
Strings of lights, lanterns, wedding sparklers, candles, fire pits, and floatable lights are all great decor options for a nighttime outdoor wedding.
How to illuminate a wedding venue?
Sleek, pre-lit tables that really shine from within provide a warm but modern vibe. Consider incorporating LED lights into floral arrangements to create bright stems that serve as both décor and mood lighting. Use a cool gobo pattern effect on the venue walls, or display small stars on the ceiling above the dance floor.
What is the best way to brighten a dark space?
Clustering candles, floating candles in water, or hanging candles from tall floral arrangements are just some of the many creative methods to add light to a dark space. Use only the venue’s columns or trees as light sources, and alternate between an inside canopy and an outdoor one.
What kind of lighting do I need for my wedding?
One uplight in each corner and two uplights behind the head table or cake are recommended for delicate accent lighting. Place uplights around the perimeter of the event, 5–10 feet apart, for the best impact.
Is it possible to use christmas lights at a wedding?
Yes. The most popular Christmas lights used in weddings are white wire tiny lights and icicles. They’re perfect for illuminating tents for outdoor weddings, as well as decorating aisles, wedding walls, and backdrops. String small lights around the end of the pews and entangle with flowers if holding a church ceremony.
Can I use bistro lights for a wedding?
Yes. Bistro lights, also known as cafe lights, are decorative string lights that are used to beautify any outdoor venue. Bistro lights are commonly utilized as wedding lights for banquets and nighttime events, but they are also popular in patio dining and gathering spaces!
